Sew Faithful QuiltersSew Faithful Quilters ("SFQ") is an organization of ladies at Faith Lutheran Church who like to sew,

have had some experience quilting or would like to learn more about quilting,

and have an interest in making philanthropy quilts for a good cause.

That cause is Project Linus.

We work through the Costa Mesa/Orange County Chapter of Project Linus,

which provides quilts to children's care facilities.

The quilts can be as small as 36" x 36" or as large as twin size beds for teens.

Most of the quilts are made crib size, or 40" x 60".

These blankets/quilts give love, warmth, comfort, and security to children who are seriously ill or traumatized.

In our area of Orange County, an abundance of these quilts are given to Orangewood Home for children in foster care and to Children's Hospital of Orange County ("CHOC").

Project Linus was born in 1995 when Pulitzer Prize winning photo-journalist, Eddie Adams,

on Christmas Eve, wrote an article called "Joy to the World".

This article appeared in Parade Magazine, and featured a small child who was going through intensive chemotherapy.

One reader, after seeing the article, decided to take on a project of making blankets for the children's cancer center in Denver.


That was the beginning of Project Linus.    National Headquarters are located in Bloomington, IL.


 

Sew Faithful Quilters meet monthly on the second Saturday of each month from 10:00 am until 3 or 4:00 pm.

We each bring our sewing machines and supplies, set up, and sew.

To allow us more time to work on our Project Linus projects, we each bring our own lunch, and take a short lunch break at mid-day.


Seven or eight quilters regularly gather each month.       project linus iginators
